    I don't think people should be rewarded for voting. It is your civic duty and should be done because you love your country.

    ^^Hey whatever gets people out to vote works for me. I'll vote regardless any free yummies, but I know so many people who are "whatever" about it that honestly need an incentive to make them go out there and do what they should do.

    Oh and pengy, I found out the Starbucks thing is only for a regular cup of coffee, none of the specialties.

    I already voted by mail last week, so I don't have one of those "I Voted" stickers!

    Man i wish there was a Daily Grill around here

    Or Eat n Park!! OMG!!! I had TOTALLY forgotten about them! I loved that place and the smiley face cookie!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    In California, it is against the law to reward someone for voting. A big no-no.

    No freebees for showing a ballot stub or sticker.

    Starbucks had to change its program, and now ANYONE can get a free Tall Coffee today.

    Free Starbucks Coffee On Election Day After Illegal Ad - News Story - KIRO Seattle


    Election officials for the state of Washington told KIRO 7 that rewarding voters with free coffee is illegal.


    "No good deed goes unpunished," said Nick Handy, director of elections.


    Handy said there is a federal statute that prohibits any reward for voting.

    Starbucks' good deed can be perceived as paying someone to vote, and that’s illegal, Handy said.


    "The way it is written, it expressly prohibits giving any kind of gift," Handy said.

    Handy said the intent of the statute is aimed at special interest groups trying to influence who and how people vote.


    To fix the situation, Starbucks had agreed to give a tall cup of coffee to anyone who asks on Election Day.
